Minutes:

The Portfolio Holder for Planning set out a report seeking approval for the adoption of the Dorset Council Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)

 

The SCI sets out how and when a local planning authority would involve the community as part of its planning duties. The draft SCI was consulted upon with 165 responses being received, analysed and the final version of the document seeking Cabinet’s approval.

 

The Portfolio Holder for Planning reported that because planning affected the future of Dorset, the council wanted to be sure that everybody was able to be involved in both the preparation of Local Plans and decisions on planning applications. He further advised that training and engagement for town and parishes would be provided.  It was suggested that this should include Parish Clerks and video training modules would also be welcomed.  The Portfolio Holder agreed to discuss this proposal with the Council’s Communications team.
